Because of COVID-19-related restrictions in Wichita, Kan., No-Till on the Plains’ 25th annual Winter Conference on Jan. 26 has moved to a virtual format, canceling the in-person portion of the event.

“We had held out hope that we might be able to gather, knowing that this annual networking experience is one of the most anticipated and valued aspects of the Winter Conference. We promise to return to in-person opportunities as soon as possible. Because we had planned for this contingency, your conference lineup will continue as advertised and will have the same great quality content you would have received on-site,” says Steve Swaffar, executive director of No-till on the Plains.

Each year, the conference welcomes growers, industry partners and soil health enthusiasts to attend the soil health educational event. Speakers this year will include author Darin Qualman, producer John Kempf, regenerative agriculture producer Chris Teachout and Dwayne Beck of Dakota Lakes Research Farm.

Sponsors for the 2020 Winter Conference are Advancing EcoAgriculture, Green Cover Seed, Exapta Solutions, Upfield, Kansas Soybean Commission, Kansas Department of Agriculture Division of Conservation, General Mills and the #NoRegrets Initiative.
